each year. In physiology, the subject is taught through an
outline which permits the use of any text. Much time is
given to the subject of digestion. Hygiene and the effects
of narcotics receive considerable attention.
In Elementary Physics, besides the textual study, the stu-
dent is encouraged and assisted in devising inexpensive ap-
paratus for experiment. An effort is made to train the rea-
soning power rather than the faculty of memory. Labora-
tory work with manipulation of apparatus and carefully
kept note book is an essential part of the course in this sub-
In Botany, careful attention is given to plant analysis,
the descriptive part of the text being developed inductively
through plant study. Written descriptions of plants studied
and pressing and mounting of specimens are required. For
fiield work, the region around Wilson possesses unusually
fine material. Laboratory work with microscopes for study
of the lower order of plants will be provided.
Two of these subjects are required for college entrance,
the third being taken in the last half of the Freshman year.
Required in all courses leading to degrees.
Physical Geography : Hinman's Eclectic.
Geology : Le Conte' s Compend.
Atlantic Christian Collge. 21
Zoology : Davenport's Introduction and Pillsbury's Biolo-
gy. Classes in one of these subjects are organized at the
beginning of each college year and carried for the first half.
In Physical Geography, the earth is studied in its natural de-
velopment as fitting it for the home of man. Mathematical
Geography, Phenomenal Geography and Ethnology are pre-
sented as being closely related.
In Geology, the class has access to the fine private col-
lection of Professor Cole. The student is encouraged to
make a collection of his own, assistance being rendered in
identifying and classifying. Special subjects for student
lectures are assigi:2d, the pupil making careful preparation
by reference to tke books in the college library, and illustrat-
ing his subject with personally constructed charts. Excur-
sions to points of local geological interest are made.
In Zoology, the study of the text is supplemented by note-
book drawing by the student, in which the characteristics of
the more important animal divisions are impressed. The
laboratory work based upon Pillsbury's Biology is fail and
complete. The distinction between lower animal and veget-
able life is carefully made.
One of these subjects is required for college entrance, the
other two being taken in the first half of the Sophomore and
Junior years. Required in all courses leading to degrees.
Chemistry: Lindsey and Storer. This' term is devoted
entirely to theoretical and general Chemistry supplemented
with laboratory work, under the direction of the professor.
Appropriate experiments are made in connection with ele-
ments studied, and results noted and compared. Students
are fully drilled in writing chemical reactions and the solu-
tion of chemical problems. First half of Freshman year.
Required in all courses leading to degrees.
Advanced Chemistry: Seller's and Evans' Analyses.
22 Atlantic Christian College.
Advanced Physics : Hasting's and Beech's General.
Classes in one of these subjects are formed for the last half
of the year. In Analytical Chemistry, the work begins with
the simple problems in qualitative analysis, a mastery of the
theory of analysis being made. The student is then required
to make a number of typical group analyses according to
Sellers' Treatise. This is followed by a brief" but practical
laboratory course in quantitative analysis, basing the practice
upon Evans' Manual. Practical determinations of oils, wa-
ter and food are required.
In Advanced Physics, the pupil is required to make ex-
tensive text and research investigations in the subject of
heat, light and electricity, preparing full discussions of re-
sults obtained by practical work in the laboratory.
These two subjects are elective. One is taken in Sopho-
more, the other in Junior year.

DEPARTMENT OF BIBLE STUDY, EVIDENCES
The complete course in this department will embrace four
years of very careful study,
I. Sacred History. It is absolutely necessary for the
minister to know the English Bible in order to be able to
preach the Gospel to English Speaking People, hence an
analytical study of the Scriptures will be carefully made.
II. Bible Geography. Palestine is called "The Fifth
"Gospel," and itis important to know something of Biblical
Geography in order to a proper understanding of many
things which are written in the sacred volume.
III. Christian Doctrine: This is a subject that has not
always received the attention which it deserves. There
are no conflicting Doctrines in the Bible; these are only m
the heads of fallable men. The Bible reveals the truth in
regard to a great many subjects which should be carefully
studied from the Bible standpoint. Comparative text study
will prove that Bible truth is not conflicting but a unit
IV. Exegesis. It is one of the greatest of arts to be
able to logically and critically analyse a passage of scrip-
ture. Much time should be devoted to this subject, to train
the mind to analytical reasoning.
V. Homilctics. The preparation and delivery of ser-
mons is all important. A full year should be devoted to this
subject. While what to preach is quite essential, how t©
preach should not be neglected.
VI. Church History. One full year should be given t©
this subject, beginning with the establishment of the early
church in Jerusalem, and following it in all its changing
vicissitudes to the present time.
VII. Christian Evidences : The Word of God yet has
its enemies, and it is the duty of the young minister to so
30 Atlantic Christian College.
prepare himself for his work that he will not be surprised by
VIII. Christian Philosophy: The "Why?" in regard
to all forms and phases of religion has ever been urged upon
the believer and especially upon the minister, for a rational
solution, and it is not asking too much of the preacher, that
he stand upon the plane of reason and from the standpoint
of a real philosopher answer the questions.
DEPARTMENT OF BUSINESS.
So thorough and practical was our Business School last
year that many of our students were offered splendid posi-
tions before they had completed their course of study.
Thorough instruction in Bookkeeping, Penmanship, Short-
hand and Typewriting is carefully given. The tuition
rates in this school are much lower than any other business
college with which we are acquainted.

citizens are aggressive, cultured and hospitable.
The main College building is a beautiful two-story brick
structure. It is modern in every respect, heated through-
out by steam, lighted by electricity and completely sewered.
It fronts 128 feet on Whitehead avenue and 121 feet on
Lee street. The building surmounts a slight hill and is in
full view and easily reached from the resident portion of the
city. Its large auditorium with a seating capacity of over
500, the spacious dinning hall, chapel, recitation rooms and
thirty-five well-ventilated bed rooms make it one of the most
conveniently arranged college buildings in the State. The
College is furnished throughout with up-to-date furniture
and fixtures. Every possible effort has been made to make
it an attractive and happy home for the young ladies who oc-
cupy it. The buildings stand in the heart of a six-acre cam-
pus, beautifully shaded by native oak and pine.

in the College Auditorium for chapel exercises. The servi-

THE CO-EDUCATIONAL FEATURE. "
Notwithstanding that this institution is co-educational,
we want it clearly understood that the young men will not
room in the College. They will simply attend the various
class sessions, going to their boarding places when through
with their recitations. The College building will be the
young ladies' home, and the campus will be their recreation

tember 6th and register, and make arrangements for the ex-
penses of one-half the first term, which lasts until January

LIFE AT A. C. COLLEGE.
Life at the College will not be humdrum and monotonous,
but full of interest, overflowing with good cheer, and crowd-
ed with honest work. Ample opportunity will be afforded
for recreation necessary for health and comfort. The home-
life will be maintained as far as possible. It will not be "all
play and no work," nor "all work and no play," but work
will be the rule. "Diligence" will be our watchword, and
our motto, "Onward by effort." The government will be
kind and gentle, but firm and unwavering. We want 300
honest, industrious boys and girls, with high aims, and no-
ble purposes, and we are not looking for any other kind.
All such coming to A. C. College will receive a cordial wel-
come, and all the consideration, kindness, and help that is
possible to give them.
Written examinations are held at the close of each term
and the pupil's grade recorded; 70 in the standard of 100
